Paediatric Sedation and analgesia

We are very proud and honored to present you PROSA2018, the very first European Conference on Pediatric Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA).
PSA represents a relatively new field in modern medicine, involving a heterogeneous group of medical professions. During this conference you will learn the most recent insights on optimal PSA-related quality, including how to guarantee patient safety as well as how to determine the most optimal PSA technique. In addition, a lot of attention will go to the patient’s perspective and techniques professionals may use to connect with children in order to alleviate their procedural fear and pain, to establish trust and to gain compliance.

PROSA2018 will offer you an exciting, case-based and practical learning experience, based on an ongoing, interactive and dynamic meeting between peers and top experts in the field.

An impressive international faculty of leading experts in the field has accepted our invitation to share their knowledge and expertise. Please click here for a quick look at the scientific program and an overview of speakers that have confirmed their participation.

9th International Symposium On The Paediatric Airway

CONFERENCE LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Strengthen collaborative care and share knowledge between different specialties (Anesthesiologists, ENT surgeons, Intensivists, Neonatologists, Pneumologists and Radiologists) involved in the pediatric airway management in order to improve patient outcome.
  • Have a better understanding of the evolving techniques and equipment in pediatric airway management in order to improve clinical care.
  • Identify the challenges raised by the difficult pediatric airways and learn about the tips and tricks and the best strategies to master these challenges.
  • Appreciation of the surgical specificities and the rationale behind the implementation of the different targeted anesthetic strategies to meet the surgical needs.

SAFE Paediatrics UK 2 day course

About the course

An Association of Anaesthetists course developed by specialist paediatric anaesthetists from the UK and the US designed to teach basic concepts in paediatric anaesthesia.

Target Audience

Particularly suitable for junior anaesthetic trainees (CT1-3) however, any anaesthetists needing refresher training in paediatric anaesthesia would be more than welcome. For example, anaesthetists returning to work after a period of absence or the occasional paediatric anaesthetist.

Content

SAFE Paediatrics UK focuses on UK paediatric anaesthesia practice and common scenarios faced by anaesthetists in well-resourced environments. It covers preparation, conduct and postoperative care of children presenting for elective surgery, as well as management of the critically unwell child.

The course covers common scenarios that UK anaesthetists encounter, particularly in non- specialist centres. It is sufficiently flexible however, that areas of specialist care could also be addressed, such as the collapsed neonate or the child with cardiac disease presenting with a fracture.

 

Teaching modalities

There are a few lectures but the mainstay of teaching is focused on small group work in the form of discussions, skill stations and scenarios with low and possibly high fidelity simulation (facilities allowing).
